It’s short for “recoup,” as in “recoup your investment on your awesome jet pack.” (We’re kidding; there are no jetpacks for rent on Quupe.)
How do you pronounce it?
I don’t like the name Quupe. It’s weird to say/spell/remember. Can’t you change it?
We have no plans to change it. We like that it’s different. We named it in the grand tradition of oddball company names, a la Google, Skype, Etsy, Twitter, and Hulu. Like many of those companies, we think that if an idea’s great, it doesn’t really matter what you call it.
